A completely home grown meal !

Well, after panicking about the potatoes I decided to dig a few up and see whether they were growing or failing. The ones we dug up were just fine. Luke was so excited to dig them. He remembers planting them back in April and has been desperate to see what was growing under the soil. You know, I reckon he could make quite a good little farmer. Here he is digging them up for me...

We were very proud of our crop of new potatoes. I'm pleased to find that there is something growing under the earth and it looks pretty healthy. Steve has bought me some potato feed as I think they may just be lacking in magnesium or something.

Well, Sam scrubbed them clean in some water and Mum and Hannah turned up. So we boiled up our fresh new potatoes and eat them with an almosty completely home grown salad! The lettuce, nasturtiums, rocket, and sprouts were all home grown. The potatoes were so delicious! I have never tasted anything like them before. Mum and Hannah both said the same thing, and Luke asked for second helpings - he never eats potato. I'm wondering how we will ever eat shop bought food again.

To top if all off Sam and Jude went out to the garden and picked the strawberries, raspberries, black currants and blueberries that were ready, and eat some for desert.
Our dinner :) Check out my new food blog to see more.

Can I move in please?

YEs you can move in. BUt you have to do chores for your food. Not too much, a bit of ironing, mopping, mowing, child care, vacuuming, dusting, toilet cleaning...

mmm, that looks so yummy! I love home grown potatoes, but didn't do any this year :-(

I love the 'because they're worth it' banner on the top corner of your blog, where do you get such a thing?

Hi Linda,
If you click on that banner it takes you to the site that I got it from. There are a few different banners, mostly christian ones, but it gives you instructions on how to add the one that I have. Hope that helps. I'll check out your blog in the morning as its 11pm now :)
